Meb FTW!!!!

Meb Keflezighi FTW!!! Unbelievable, 36 years old and headed to London for his third Olympics. GO MEB!

Good move (and now rewarded) by Sketchers to sponsor Meb. Can't believe Nike dropped an Olympic silver medalist, NYC winner, someone whose family walked 500 miles of African desert to escape war, and someone who loves America so much he probably gave up the Trials record to slow down to wave a flag and salute Army soldiers on course after he ran 26 miles.

Nike swoosh on an NBA bench-warmer with a Nike contract > Meb Keflezighi representing America? Don't think so.

So incredibly happy for Meb.
